Urban meets ultra-luxury at the newest Rosewood property in Thailand, this time in the city of Bangkok. Sleek and contemporary, with nods to Thai culture and art throughout, the centrally positioned property is changing the Bangkok skyline—and offers lots for guests to do while there.
Located less than 40 minutes from both international airports, the 30-story hotel is right in Bangkok’s busy business and shopping area—so expect lots of lux shops to visit post-meetings. For those who want to check out other areas of the city, there’s direct access to the Ploenchit BTS Skytrain from the hotel, too, making it quick to get to and from the hotel.
If you’re looking for a sophisticated and chic hotel with amenities that are sure to surprise, this 159-room property is a great choice. Outfitted in neutral hues—think whites and creams, with the occasional burst of blue or other bright color—there are nods to that feeling of “home,” with books and art on display in-room. The property also offers suites with up to two bedrooms, as well as three houses, which come equipped with their own pools. (An early morning dip sounds like a great way to start the day, if you ask us.) But there’s also a serene vibe—and both the long driveway that greets you upon entrance and the 10-story indoor waterfall (and other water attributes you’ll find) are examples of this, not an easy feat in a metropolis of 8 million people.
Along with the calming nature of the space, there are features throughout the property that really set it apart from others. For instance, every floor has a different footprint—so one might have just one room, and another floor might have 12 rooms. Another example? Lennon’s, the speakeasy at the top of the hotel. Sitting on the 30th floor, with amazing floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the city, not only do you enter from a “secret” door as you would in the 1920s, but Lennon’s takes the concept to a whole new level, with over 6,000 vinyl records to choose from. Paired with vintage cocktails and era-specific Cuban cigars, it’s a nod to old-fashioned fun, but with a modern twist. There are three other dining destinations on the property—including the signature Nan Bei, which serves authentic Chinese cuisine. (When you visit, take in the unique and stylish light features in each of the restaurants—they are fantastic.) Art in general is an important aspect of the property: There is work by Thai artists, including Preecha Thaothong and Pinaree Sanpitak, as well as “Art Connection,” a rotating exhibit. You’ll also find an indoor-outdoor saltwater pool, 24-hour fitness studio and Sense, A Rosewood Spa, which offers Thai specialties. Plus, if you’re there on business, there are multiple meeting venues—from private dining rooms to spaces for large crowds of up to 200.
As part of the Rosewood Elite Program—a private, invitation-only program—booking through First in Service means you’ll receive complimentary breakfast daily, a $100 food and beverage credit, 15% savings on spa menu at Sense, a room upgrade if available, and a welcome amenity. Rooms include Frette linens, housekeeping services twice a day, and many offer amazing views of the city.
F1S Insider Tips:
Have an extensive vinyl collection? Bring your own records to Lennon’s, where they’ll play them for you. And if you want to keep things healthy while on the road, the G&O cafe is the only farm-to-table spot in a hotel in the city.
